Family isn't my favorite word, either. I find you can walk the streets and pick out "types" (mother type, father type, brother type, etc.) and create a better family out of what you find there, than sometimes you're born with.
Thank you for the post on my last write, and yes it was real, I was just having one of those bad days the other days, tonight I am doing far better today than I was yesterday. I just hate it when I get in those moods, yet for what better way is to vent your feelings than to put them pen 'pon paper, you know what I am saying.
Anyhow, once again, I apprechiate that you had the courtesy to write a comment on my piece. I wasn't really expecting any feedback.
